Dear lybrate-user, your brain is creative but you do not have enough experience in the basic concept and do not have the required education. To have the experience, it takes time. Once you have the experience and the required knowledge, you will be able to implement your ideas. Don't worry. Don't get frustrated, instead, gain as much knowledge as possible. Take care.

I am one year married Our relation is not so good going We r not happy with each other I feel like m suffering from depression. Even I can't control my anger I use to hurt myself in anger Want to get rid of it. Plzz help.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Getting married is a" life changing" experience. After getting married a boy and a girl enter into a new" role" of" spouse" and both have to shoulder a number of responsibilities. There is loss of freedom as well. All this causes stress if is not handled properly. You might be having different expectations from each other and probably are not able to express yourselves properly. Since, you are hurting yourself when angry, kindly seek help from a counsellor at the earliest. The counsellor will help you in understanding, expressing and managing your anger as well as your marital relationship.

Dear lybrate-user. Your body starts the repair process immediately on stopping smoking. Your body could take some 3 to 6 months to completely repair your body and lungs. Take care.

I am. 20 years old and I smoke a lot. What should I do to leave this bad habit? Please advice me.

I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so. But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction.-

Respected sir what are differences between anxiety and depression? What are early signs of anxiety. I feels weakness and more time sleeps, not interested to join with society, not interested on food, always weeping among my self. Sir is all of these anxiety symptoms. I am some type of std phobia feeling. Please help out me sir.

MBBS, DPM (Psychiatry)

Both can occur together and overlap. No problem treatment is similar. In anxiety you feel discomfort, weakness, can not rest, palpitations etc Your sleeplessness social withdrawal poor feeding weeping etc are more in favour of depression So please get treated for depression and you will be alright.

I could not concentrate on my studies properly. So could you please advice me what to do n what is the cause of it.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Thanks for the query. Since when do have these concentration difficulties in studies? Starting from simple to more complex issues; we usually are able to concentrate better when whatever we are reading/doing is interesting for us & NOT MERELY DRAB WORK! Hence, you can try to make studies interesting by devising punmonics, trying to figure out practical applications of whatever you are studying with help of teachers & elders around. Secondly, try & choose subjects/courses which you are really interested in studying & just do not study for the heck of getting a degree/academic qualification. Lastly, studies have time & again proven that average concentration span of human mind is around 30 minutes. Hence, if you are able to study for 30 minutes; you are actually doing good! You can devise a 30 minutes study-10 minutes break (strictly 10 minutes!) schedule to improve your concentration. Good Luck.

What happens when we smoke. Why it becomes a habit. Why do youngsters attract to smoking.

BHMS
Homeopath, Gurgaon
Tobacco smoking contains lots of health hazardous substance, it contains nicotine also which is highly addictive. So when any body starts smoking he or she become habituated of it.

Here, I am going ask a question about an illusion. I don't know it's true or not. My relative is working on govt job, he used to drink. He is about 48. From the last 4 days. He felt that there are some spirits or other things and those are talking about his household matters. And about other things. 4 days ago he felt the voice of those things in his ears. Next day at evening those were little bit visible to him. Then he realized that there were 10 or more things. And those were died years ago. Some about 4 other 5 years others 20 years ago. He never had it before. He was like they r gonna talking about his every thing and saying to kill him. Even when we called him on phone, he said those were listening us. Like if we said they r fake it's illusion. Those magical things replied it's true like that things. All people like our relatives were saying that it's black magic. Some people said that some spills hve been put on him. They said these type of things. We thought that maybe it's because of his drinking habit. But from last 5 days. He didn't touch whisky or other thing. Then he went to gurudwara and came home by chanting the name of some baani. He said he was listening the same chanted things when he used to stop chanting. Then last day. We went to a man suggested by people. He talked to dad on phone. And did some things. Then dad said those were starting going far. And today he didn't see anything Is it true that it's because of black magic?

I am a 32 year old female. I have been taking psychiatric medications for last two years. I am not able to study at home for the course that I am pursuing. I feel like shooting myself with a gun. I am in love with a guy but he doesn't ask me out. I cry at nights. What should I do?

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, You are under psychiatric care since 2 years. Please talk to your psychiatrist about your feeling of shooting yourself and also your love. The psychiatrist may adjust the dose or add another antidepressant or mood stabiliser and/or psychotherapy. If she/he feels suicidal risk is high, she/he may give ECT or rTMS in addition. Please note that feeling of shooting yourself comes and goes off like a wave. Talk to someone close to you in your family or friends. Think of the good things you got in your life for which life is worth living. If you have access to a gun, please hand it over to others.

My son is not getting success in his studies. He was admitted in Thapar college in Patiala in Electrical Engineering in 2013, however he was interested in Mechanical Engineering. The seats at the time his admission were filled there was no seat. He wanted to study Mechatroncis but we advised not to take being a new branch. He himself changed from electrical to Computer. In Dec 2013 he discontinued and came back home to study for entrance exam 2014 as well as for CBSE 2014 board exam to improve his percentage of marks but did not study hard and therefore no change in marks in any of the exam. In 2014 he was admitted in Bangalore in his desired branch Aeronautical Engineering and college. He could not qualify in basic papers of first and second semester like Math, Physics, Chemistry Basic Electronic, Electrical engineering and he could not admission in 3rd semester because of 7 back papers. He attempted in 2015,2016 and again appeared in Dec-Jan 2017 exam. Result may be announced in Feb 2017. I advised him to study non science stream like BBA, or BA LLB. However, I yet to get his response. May I get some advice in this situation to put him stream where he can progress and move up in his life. I have consulted NIMHAS Bangalore to find out any mental issue for not focusing in his studies but no such serious issue as per Doctor.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Firstly, you should get his aptitude test done. Secondly, Its good to explore various subjects but interest and aptitude is quite apparent from beginning. If he is unable to crack or qualify or progress in professional streams or subjects which are beyond his level of understanding, He should go for something lik BBA or mass communication or any field he has interest in. Let him decide. Do not decide for your child. Very important get his career counseling done. You can contact me for any guidance. All the best sir.

Hi sir my wife is suffering from depression. Kindly suggest what we do. Age - 24 year old.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

I'm on antipsychotics for four yrs. I had irregular cycles ended up in amenorrhea since one yr. I consulted a gynecologist. She did ultrasonogrm abdomen and pelvis which was found to be normal. Den she checked my hormone levels. Prolactin found to be elevated to 132ng/ml. I was advised to take MRI brain. Nd it had a bulge in article pituitary gland. Can the bulge be due to antipsychotic induced hyperprolactinaemia?

Yes prolactinomas are known to occur after prolonged treatment with antipsychotic drugs. But whatever the cause, better to get operated and have it removed after a short course with bromocriptine.
